Talking about old apps..... A.K.A Abandonwares

There are site popping up offering old apps that date back to 1970 or so.......

Some sites also offer Word version 1.0 or Windows 1.0 !!!!!
They also have the mosaic old browsers and such.
But if you want the ut most compatibility then also have an
option for your users to have a "TEXT ONLY" sites.

Its the law now for .gov sites to be making their site usable for the
visually impaired or handicapped user.

So whats good for the .gov sites is also good for you!

But text only is also great in that it will always load very fast and
spiders won't time out indexing that page!
